Here's a tune we stumbled upon while jamming. Maybe it will grow into a song. What should we add? So far Frank and Toby played guitar and drums live. Frank then added bass, unpicked. Free Mp3 download for this and every jam on http://soundcloud.com/aoeria/jam122713/

PS, if you are a bass player or know and can envision playing bass with us please drop us a line at email@example.com
What's up everyone? Snowed in? We are, looks to be a few feet here, especially cause I catch lots of drift! Well fear not, we have more music to keep your spirit warm.
We've been in studio between all things happening (jobs, storms, life) and are really getting into some surprising sounds. The guitars are flowing and we have some singing to do. We can't wait to share the songs with you!
I was just listening to the new Wayne Shorter album and was inspired to make a song, it's just solo guitar- a strat with no effects straight in jamming on some melody ideas. Would you like to hear it?
It's an afterhours jam we did to sketch a few ideas, called "Winter's Jam" until it becomes a new song- Winters Jam
Want to guess what saying was the inspiration for the title? It has one of the same words, and I thought it meant something about the drabness of the cold season, but in fact it's meaning is like the silver lining to a cloud.
PS try and stop by the Hard Rock Cafe contest and download "All For You" to give us a vote.

August 25 Summer update
Hey everybody! How's it going? We took a little Summer break to hang out in the shade, listen to lots of new music, and get our energy renewed. We have a bunch of songs that we have been crafting and really want you to hear them! Melodies now need to be set to words and feelings and colors we envision reacting to the whole sound of the music will be evoked by guitars. In the meantime we have some tidbits that we cooked up on the side. Maybe one day we'll gather all of them for a main course, something like Aoeria's Jam Stew. Here's one from last Saturday, August 25th that you can have a mp3 of follow this link. Enjoy!
July & August Update (late posting)
Here's some pictures from the mixing and mastering sessions for Praise to All You Hear. Both can be saved our view in full size, click either or right click and save as.
Here's a picture of the Studer a820 tape recorder in action mixing & mastering Praise to All You Hear. We also did Waterwheel with it. There aren't many of these around, especially looking and sounding so pretty. We were lucky to have Kim Stallings from Sony Studios take care of it. Thanks Kim!
And a special giveaway anniversary celebration!
It was two years ago today that Praise to All You Hear came out to play. We would like to say from us to you, thank you for all that you do. May the music rise to meet you, and to thine own self sky blue.
Here's a pic of the album with all the panels that go inside. We have two copies of the album with handwritten song titles and cover, email firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like one. Thanks for listing to Aoeria!!! Frank
July 13, '12 New Interview
Here's an interview we did with Vents Magazine a few months before the one we posted from ProjectFresh. It has info about the idea of the band, our musicial inspirations, funny hypothetical questions, and a few new pics. Enjoy!
July 2, '12 New Album Update:
The new album is coming along nicely, the sounds will be familiar and new. The mix of the thick guitars, driving drums, stretched bass strings, and intertwining melodies is in full swing. Now the sonics have been a bit expanded, there are new instruments never used on aoeria songs before. Percussion like shakers and tambourines sprinkle the rhythms, organs swirl between the speakers, and acoustic guitars mesh with fuzz guitars in a tight weave. Can't wait to share the sounds with everyone.
Bandcamp, a great site that helps small bands like us put up cool stuff as direct as possible from us to you. Standard-definition CDs Wavs and Mp3s are 16 bit 44.1khz (like classic video games) but our Hi-Def Wav, Mp3, & Dvd are 24bit 96khz (Waterwheel is 24/48), like most Blu-Rays. Download Shuttle or Wonder for free to see how you like it.
The hi-def files are available in many formats; we recommend Flacs to make uncompressed Wav files which are right off the master reel (yep, we use tape), read bandcamp's instructions. They also offer higher quality mp3s, but check compatibility for portable use, you may want our standard-def version with CD format wavs and ipod friendly mp3s. Happy listening! -Frank
Praise to All You Hear (24bit 96khz flacs & more, Cd/Dvd sets available with hi-def audio & artwork during songs)
Waterwheel (24bit 48khz flacs & more, Cd/Dvd sets available with hi-def audio pictures, artwork during songs & bonus)

The Reel Story of Aoeria and Waterwheel
Here's the first part of several telling the story. It and covers the early beginnings of the band to the first sessions that would become Waterwheel. Please sit back, tune into some music, and turn the page…
Here's a poem I made recently aoeria.blogspot.com/2012/03/sunday-morningsunday-morning-collecting.html
1. Dreams Fall Away
2. The Abyss
3. Tell Me True
5. Broken Promises
6. Snow Drift
8. The Grid
11. All for You
Aoeria's secomd album, Praise to All You Hear is out now on mp3 and CD with bonus DVD with high definition mixes on Amazon and CDBaby. Each Cd also includes a postcard-size prints artwork, pictures are selected randomly and available until supply runs out (about 50). Everything about the album is made 100% by the band in our own studio/space, from writing & recording, to designing and pressing the CDs, DVDs and prints, so you can know quality and trueness is what we care about.
This album has been a real labor of love. We went over everything until it was just how we wanted and we are happy to share it you in higher quality sound then we've ever had before. The DVD has 24bit 96khz and 48khz streams so you can hear the extra range of tone that's closer to what it sounded like in the room when we played it. That's what Aoeria goes for, to make sounds that are descriptive and so vivid you can touch them. Most of the sounds are recorded live, with a few spacial effects added in to bring the sound we hear, which is without limits, for you to hear. The CD/DVD as features Frank's photography and the DVD has a slides arranged to the songs.

News: October 16th, 2011
Hey everyone! Frank from Aoeria here, I'm the songwriter, singer, guitarist and Toby Bruzik is our drummer. I'd like to personally thank you from checking Aoeria out, it's incredible to share original music directly with people who care, so thank you for being a part of this! I am recording new songs which I can't wait to play for you. We are also looking for a bassist, so if you play or know anyone and are interested email us at email@example.com I've added the photo montage videos from Praise to All You Hear's DVD to youtube which you can watch on our channel at youtube.com/aoeria. Also the full version of Waterwheel is on Youtube now (*though take it as a impression of the real thing, nothing compares to the sound and look of the real cd/dvd- please read our note below)
a note on Aoeria's creations: You'll never find a upc directly on aoeria's album artwork, or copyright information, because it is not part of the work and experience being presented. a painter doesn't say every minute detail about his work right on it, only the essentials that we would like to have to share the expression we are trying to create. I like to read some details about what I'm listening to, mainly who is playing and maybe where it was made, who was involved, or some of the inspirations. The rest is up to the music. Our videos are an extensions of the artwork created for the album. The music is not contained only on a cd or mp3, it exists as a work on many formats, between the formats, because if had another medium of expression there would be even more to see and hear. For now dvds are the best option we have for presented our songs and images cohesively, so we recommend this for the purest experience to what we created. Thank you for listening to aoeria and enjoy! ~Frank

Here's some additional info about the album and the band
Aoeria (A-or-ee-uh) is an independent positive melodic rock band that creates songs from heavy riffs to acoustically strummed odes from the Long Island/New York City area. Frank Giliberti is the singer, guitarist and songwriter and Toby Bruzik, the newest member, plays drums.Aoeria's newly released 2nd album, Praise to All You Hear is now making waves and their first album Waterwheel has gathered more than 1,100 fans on Jango Internet radio and over 36,000 views of Youtube for bandmade videos that are montages of Frank's photography. For more than 12 years both Frank and Toby have played in and recorded NY-area bands, and with Aoeria a sound and unique style featuring intense guitar sounds, introspective lyrics and intricate melodies and rhythms culminate in the duo's collective experiences with music. The band is completely independent: from the music, recording, and pictures, to pressing and designing CDs & DVDs and making websites and videos. Straight from the band, music made to head straight to the ear. Aoeria is currently playing in around the NY and East Coast area which has allowed us to expand on the vibe of the songs by feeding off the energy in the crowd with improvisation and jamming to spread the melodies and tunes through the air.
Thanks for listening, hope you enjoy!
Praise to All You Hear!
